Abstract : The objective of the program was to explore advanced concepts in the design and manufacture of frequency control devices. The program was designed to lead to low cost mass production, high performance components, increased levels of communication system circuit integration, and a significant size reduction of radios and other communication system elements. The proposed approach was to adapt advanced microelectronic material processing, piezoelectric thin films, and micromachining of single crystal plates to achieve wafer scale integration and production of a wide class of frequency control devices.
